Millionaire trotting mare Plunge Blue Chip was impressive on Wednesday morning (May 22) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, as she took part in the track’s qualifying session and recorded the first charted mile of her four-year-old campaign.

The daughter of Muscle Mass went out and recorded a wire-to-wire win in 1:54.2 for her trainer, Åke Svanstedt, who was in the bike.

Plunge Blue Chip set fractions of :29.2, :58.4, and 1:27 en route to a five and a half-length victory (she trotted her back half in :55.3 and final quarter in :27.2. Åke Svanstedt Inc. co-owns the talented trotter with Blue Chip Bloodstock Inc. and Tomas Andersson.

Last year, Plunge Blue Chip turned in three world record performances. Over a mile track she twice trotted in 1:49.4, at the Meadowlands Racetrack and at the Red Mile, to tie with fellow then-sophomore Impinktoo as the fastest female trotter in North America in 2018. At Delaware, she tied the divisional world record of Frau Blucher with a 1:53.1 victory. She also won her New York Sire Stakes championship, and her career figures are now 26-17-3-4 for earnings of $1,003,559.
